All of our rugs carry the Goodweave label
GoodWeave is a global, not-for-profit organisation which is responsible for operating the GoodWeave certification programme internationally. Goodweave work to end illegal child labour in the rug industry and to offer educational opportunities to children in South Asia.
So far, their programmes have rescued over 3,000 children from working the looms, and prevented thousands more from entering the factories. Those rescued from working are reunited with their families, or taken to live at one of our sponsored rehabilitation centres.
Goodweave also run vital educational and welfare programmes for poor weaving families and their children – providing pre-school day care for small children who would otherwise spend their days hanging around factories waiting for their parents to finish work.
By buying rugs and carpets bearing the GoodWeave label, you can be sure they were not made by under-age children working illegally.
